Glow Gear Face Transforming LED Mask

This LED mask from Megoo has a rogue’s gallery of 45 dynamic display modes as well as 70 static display images. You can also upload your own images via the app, as with the Glow Gear model, and display your own text on the mask screen should you choose to.

It also has gesture sensing switching, allowing you to vary your visage on the fly. So, if you want to change from a post-modern Ghostface into everybody’s favorite tricycle-riding puppet mid-party, you can do so with ease.

You can also use this mask to choose a display that syncs to your own voice as well or to adapt to the music around you. Particularly cool if you choose to wear this at a festival, for instance.

Battery life is marginally less favorable with this Megoo mask. For roughly five hours of charge time, you can expect up to ten hours of use. A small niggle though, as even the best of us would probably struggle to party for much longer than ten hours in a row!

Soft silica gel inside the mask keeps things super comfortable, and the mask itself can be fitted to suit all.

All in all, a great option for any Halloween party, offering you even more heads to wear than Princess Mombi in Return to Oz.

There are 45 animations and 70 static images to choose from and you can also upload your own images via the app. DIY scrolling text can also be added to the mask display, so there are plenty of customization options to explore.

One word of caution, however. Do not charge this device and display graphics on its face at the same time. This may cause your mask to overheat, giving you a horrific outcome different than the one you’d planned for.

Overall though, this is a very good quality face-changing mask and ideal for parties or festivals.
